You can't, except by context. It's similar in English:

The film was showing in the new theater. It was great!

How do you know what "it" refers to, the film or the theater.

If the question was referring to not only the movie, as I felt it was, then the 2nd answer offered should have been, « Tom Cruise, il est... ».
